Hi everyone, just after a bit of advice if anyone has suffered with similar or knows what I could do to make it stop.....
I obsess over certain things, and it isn't just a small obsession it can take over my life, my sleep, my thoughts, my actions etc.
I suffered with Bulimia for many years, I know it never really leaves you, but that was an obsession. I was obsessed with being sick and it making me feel better as that was the only thing that would.
Another example, my front door lock broke, I have changed this lock now twice ( bought new from shop & professionally fitted ) I am still not satisfied I am locked in properly. I get up and check the door is locked several times over the case of an hour, I can't sleep, it is on my mind, it is an obsession.
Another example my ex bf used to drink and take very strong drugs, I used to obsess over this, worry where he was what he was doing, I would constant text and call etc etc, it wasn't healthy for me, I was stressing myself out obsessing over his actions and that he was OK.
Another example, my brother would never wash up after himself, dirty dishes left on the side, in his room, living room, kitchen units etc, just expected me to do it, this was an obsession, where I would get very angry, and again I would call, send a million texts, get upset over this, it takes over my life.
Once one obsession is over and done with, like it has been fixed or left my life, I move onto something else, I feel like I have to have something that continually takes over my life to constant worry or obsess over, im stressed out if I don't ....
I do suffer with depression, I take medication to control this and my bulimia, but I am not convinced the above comes under depression or symptoms of bulimia?
If anyone has any advice I would really appreciate it
